You sink beneath its tide',

From which man wakes to sigh'!
Some false, deceitful, meteor beam',

That'sheds a wandering', cheerless glean',

And brightens' but to die!!

But cares bedeck'd with smiles!
The pageants of an empty show',

That fain would hide the latent wo',

From him, it oft beguiles!!
3. And what the secret, pensive tear',

But kindly dews of even'!
Each drop', pellucid', sparkling clear",

To sympathy',--to virtue dear',
Is soon exhal'd to heaven'.

On land, and on the sea'.

Till every trace was gone!
